Stills from ‘The Last Days of Jack Sheppard’ by Anja Kirschner & David Panos

The first of a series of our public events to explore the intersection of costume and moving image began with a screening of ‘The Last Days of Jack Sheppard’ by Anja Kirschner & David Panos, selected from the LUX Collection. Anja Kirschner introduced the film with a presentation of their references, and then took part in an audience Q&As. More information about the event can be accessed here.
